Here’s what other foster carers have to say

I was initially concerned about balancing my career and fostering a child. But OzChild showed me how flexible it is. I usually put my hand up for young people who need a carer for 3-6 months, but when I am busy at work, I switch to respite on weekends for a while.

Jenny, 32Single. Working full-time

Looking after our 10-year-old son as a stay-at-home mum while my husband works, I wanted to do something with purpose in life. We wanted to give back to our community by fostering a child. Our son loves being the ‘role model’ to the kids in our care. It is not always rainbows and unicorns because the kids we care for have all experienced trauma of some sort, but it is so worth it, and the support we received from the OzChild has been exceptional.

When we first looked into fostering, we had no idea if we would be eligible to be a same-sex couple. We couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and inclusive foster care experience at OzChild. And over the years, we’ve met so many other like-minded carers! I can see us fostering until we’re 70!
